Jeff Berman's Rescued Wood Desk

We're pleased to select Jeffrey Berman of San Francisco, CA for our Wood Finishing Showcase. Jeffrey's project is a rescued wood desk.

Dear Minwax,

I recently taught myself how to refinish fine wood furniture. I had an old desk that was in desperate need of refinishing. After preparing the wood, my friend recommended I use all Minwax products for the best results. Since the desk was a mix of solid wood types, I started with Minwax pre-stain wood conditioner to ensure even staining. The stain I used was Minwax oil-based red mahogany, followed by Minwax fast-drying oil-based polyurethane. I finished the project off with a Minwax wipe-on poly for that hand rubbed look. The desk now looks fantastic and I look forward to enjoying it for many years.
